Fall Festooning!!!

I was at JoAnn Fabrics yesterday and spotted these Fall Lights. They have a brown cord, perfect for my tabletop grapevine tree (or those grapevine pumpkins at Marshall's!)..and the lights on them are orange, amber and brown, love the warm glow they give off! Only $4.99 for 50 lights I think it was.


Also spotted at JoAnn's were Marie's Harvest boxes that she ordered from Terry's Village! And another good find were some of those mini lamps with the night light bulbs...clearanced for $6.97.




I bought this 'thing' at a garage sale this summer. Stuck some Candy Corn and a tealight candle holder and candle and we're good to go...although I am afraid to light that candle in there!



Not sure if you can what I did here. I got this cylinder shaped Pyrex glass 'thing' at a garage sale for a dollar. There is a lid that goes to it, but I am not using that here. I just stuffed it with some sparkly fall ribbon and then stuck this little pot of faux flowers in at the top, got those at Michael's. It works for me ;)


Time for some bloggy copying love! Saw this on Susie Harris' blog, too cute!





Isn't he adorable? Only $3.99 at Marshall's, I swear that was a price mistake, but all of the Halloween tassels were marked that price, so maybe not? A bargain, for sure!
That black thing next to it? Just a little teaser...can't wait to show you what's in that corner!!!






And just for fun...I have 2 sons, ages 4 and 13...not planned that way, just happened that way, what an adventure!!! Well, as you can imagine, the 13 year old's sense of humor is well, like a 13 year old boy's sense of humor...look what he did in our bathroom, isn't he precious?





I love them boys!!!


ttfn,


Bella

Really cute Fall decorations! I love that tassel!

Chris said...

I so admire your talents.I can't wait till I get to a town that has some of the stores you shop at, I'll try to remember this when I get home and start complaining about the congestion of traffic. LOL

Hugs,

Darlene said...

Love all of your Fall decorations...and you can get those small flameless candles to go in the glass...that would look great. I got several at Cracker Barrel for $1.50 each. Peace of mind when I didn't want a flame somewhere!!

Love what art turned into...that is FUNNY!

Shannon said...

I love all your fall touches! Seems like everyone is shopping at Joanns these days! :) I wish we had one of those stores!

Kitty Scraps said...

Hi Bella,
OK instead of reading everyone's blog posts and looking at all their gorgeous fall stuff I should be unloading mine from my attic while I have these two days at home but nope, I'm catching up on my bloggy friends instead. Remind me of this when I start to whine that I don't have my home decorated yet ok? *smiles* Love all your fall treasures with serious envy going on!

Susie Harris said...

Meghan said...

Love your pumpkin tassel.
I totally relate to your 13 yr old boy.
I have a 14yr, soon to 15 yr old, boy, a 9 soon to 10yr old boy & a freshly turned 2 yr old boy.
God help me!

Bettsi said...

Oh, I love the "FART"! My son's idea of humor was my post today too- he's almost 12 and his brother is 15. I had no idea I would laugh so much at these ages, but everyday they crack me up!

Thanks for the heads up on those lights- I'm wantin' me some now!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

My 8 year old would think that was completely hilarious. I have no idea why.

:-)
Cute ideas!
xo

Half of the Style Sisters said...

Bella..thank you for the highlight on your blog about my pumpkin topiaries! I love the F art photo on yours. My brother has 7 boys and I know he will get a kick out of that! You have such great ideas. The lights are beautiful as well.

Marie said...

Oh I sure hope those boxes weren't cheaper at Joanns! lol With my luck...I KNOW they were!

I'm cracking up at what your son did in the bathroom. I have a 12 year old that wouldn't have hesitated to do the same thing.

Your 'thing' is cute! Making me hungry though....

Dawn said...

Great decorations! I love the lights. The soft glow is beautiful. Your bathroom sign had me smiling. My 10 year old son thought it was pretty funny too! By the way my children are 18 years apart in age!

take care,
Dawn

Great humor by your son! if there's one place that's perfectly permitted it's the bathroom!!
Hugs,Sherry
The candy corn is so cute in that lantern!

nikkicrumpet said...

Great decor...but I'm so loving the touch your son added!

eleanor joyce said...

too too funny - that's like something that would happen in my house. I have an 18 year old son, and girls 16, 14, 12 - and I gotta tell you, its NOT just a boy thing.

Ms. Tee said...

What cute stuff! It's about time they came out with a brown cord for lights, isn't it? :)
I have a son the same age as yours, so I know that humor all to well!

Jen r. said...

Bella, love the decorations!!!! I love what you did with the candy corn!

Justine said...

OOh girl, you've been busy prettying up the place! My kids keep asking me when I'm going to decorate for Halloween, and I don't even know where the decorations are!

Justine :o )

Picket said...

That is a beautiful photo of your twig tree and lights. I'm sure it is just as lovely in person! Sally

Ann said...

The Fall Lights is so lovely. Your son must be really cool to think of that:)

Nikki said...

Aren't boys fun! Great fall inspiration. Since you aren't sure about lighting the tea light candle, you can get a battery operated one, that looks real.

Mrs. B said...

I love those fall lights! I love any excuse to use lights like that. Very pretty!

That F-Art sign is hilarious! Boys... And they dont' grow out of it. I have letters for Christmas that say Joy and Noel. Last year, my brother in law rearranged them to say "Yo Leon". They were that way for two days before I noticed!

We are THAT Family said...

I love those white pumpkins and your fall inspirations!
